Come join our small group of Australian native plant enthusiasts. Our group has been active for 30 years and would love to share our wealth of knowledge in propagating and growing natives in our local area.
What we do
We run monthly meetings with interesting guest speakers who talk on a variety of subjects including native plants, ecology, wildlife, and the environment.
We run a small nursery at Illawong Rural Fire Station where we teach members and the local community how to propagate local plants and interstate natives that grow well in Sydney gardens. We also run a larger nursery at Lucas Heights Resource Recovery Park where we propagate plants for bush regeneration. We also supply plants for free to schools and other community groups or worthy projects.
We also maintain gardens at the Illawong Rural Fire Station which showcases the variety and beauty of Australian plants.
Visitors are always welcome at our meetings and propagating days.
Our quarterly newsletters are packed with interesting articles and news. NEWSLETTERS
